Landmark Theatres will reopen West End Cinema (2301 M St NW) later this month, according to a sign recently posted on the theater’s window.
New employees are currently being hired to prepare for a soft opening on July 17, an employee working at the former West End Cinema location said today.
A Craigslist ad seeking part-time staffers was posted last week.
West End Cinema closed last March amid “significant increases” to occupancy costs, reported the Washington Post.
Landmark Theatres is a national theater chain that owns the E Street Cinema downtown and the Bethesda Row Cinema in Bethesda.
In addition to West End, the theater chain also plans to open a new theater in the Atlantic Plumbing Project development on V Street NW on October 9, as reported by the Washington Business Journal in November.
